Alstom wins Sembcorp cogen power plant deal in Singapore

Alstom has signed a long term service agreement with Sembcorp Cogen for its cogeneration power plant on Jurong Island in Singapore.

Under the deal, Alstom will perform both major and minor overhauls for the steam turbine and the three generators at the plant, which was built by Alstom and commissioned in 2001. 

The 815 MW Sembcorp Cogen Power Plant was Sembcorp’s first power plant in Singapore and the first privately-developed independent facility in the country.

It was also the first to introduce combined cycle gas turbine technology to Singapore and remains the country’s largest cogeneration facility.

Meanwhile, Alstom is currently constructing a 400 MW combined cycle cogeneration plant for Sembcorp in the Banyan district of Jurong Island. The plant is expected to be completed in 2014.

Singapore has an installed electricity generation capacity of 11 GW, with demand reaching 6.5 GW during peak periods. The country maintains a reserve capacity to ensure the reliability of its electricity grid. Most of Singapore’s power producers are adding new capacity after being incentivised to purchase gas from the new liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal coming on-stream in 2013.
